WISE — Dominion Energy’s charitable arm, the Dominion Energy Foundation, has provided a $25,000 donation to the Health Wagon, Southwest Virginia’s only free health clinic serving Wise, Scott, Lee, Dickenson, Buchanan and Russell counties and the city of Norton.

“The Dominion Foundation is truly a good neighbor,” said Health Wagon Executive Director Teresa Gardner Tyson. “The past and continued support from the foundation helps to provide health care at no cost to over 6,000 uninsured, underinsured and underserved patients.”

Mark Kuh, station director at Dominion’s Virginia City Hybrid Energy Center, a 585-megawatt power generating station in Wise County, said the company “is pleased to continue its support for the Health Wagon.” The foundation also contributed $25,000 last year.

Dominion’s charitable foundation strives to improve the physical, social and economic well-being of communities within its service areas.

The foundation supports a broad range of nonprofit organizations and causes that meet basic human needs, protect the environment, promote education and encourage community vitality. Moreover, it has become deeply involved in charitable giving in Southwest Virginia since 2008, when Dominion began constructing its generating facility in St. Paul.

That facility became operational in 2012. For more information, visit the company’s website at www.dominionenergy.com.
